    Brasero adding ;1 to all files ?

    I'm trying to make an .iso from my Age of Empires disc, using Brasero.

    For some reason, it's adding ;1 to every, single, file. The directories look good, but the files all have to be renamed for this .iso to be useful.

    Any clues why this is happening or how to make it STOP happening?

    insert AOE disk
    start Brasero
    select "Disc Copy"
    disc to copy = AOE, disc to write to = Image File, Properties = ISO9660image
    Create Image

    full of files amended with ;1 at the end

    I've had Brasero check the integrity of the disk, and it thinks it's fine. I'm not getting any errors, just that awful renaming issue.

    This has happened with another disk in the past, and I went through and removed the ;1 from all the files but that's just a huge hassle, and surely there is a way to just not have those extra characters glued on?

    I found a bug report on the same problem, but there was never any follow up on it.

    A semicolon and a number are a standard part of ISO-9660 filenames. Linux, like most OSes, hides those from view when a disc is mounted normally. You don't say how you were reading the image file you created, but it's possible that the method you used did not hide those filename features. I recommend you try this, from a Terminal window:

    sudo mount -o loop brasero.iso /mnt
    ls /mnt
    sudo umount /mnt
    Change the filename as necessary. If the files you see in /mnt lack the semicolons and numbers, then the image is fine, and you just need another way to mount the disc, such as the mount command I just specified. You can do whatever you like with the mounted image file, and use "umount" to unmount it when you're done with it.
    If I've suggested a solution to a problem and you're not the original poster, do not try my solution! Problems can seem similar but be different, and a good solution to one problem can make another worse. Post a new thread with your problem details.
